You have to be careful with double dipping. So in my opinion, no, you cannot use that toward the ROS.
This would be my recommendation:
SUBJECTIVE: This is a 26 whte female, in today with complaints of right lower quandrant pain since this morning. She states that when she first woke up, she had noticed that her abdomen was quite tender. She has complained of chills all day. She has a history of a hysterectomy. "
Since this morning (duration)
When she first woke up (Timing)
Chills (associated signs and symptoms) OR you could use this in the ROS under constitutional, but you can't use it in BOTH the HPI and ROS. You have to pick one or the other.
I would use the Hysterectomy as part of the past surgical history.
I hope this helps...
